Description
Neither passive nor overly styled, Manuel Abramovich’s latest documentary observes the great Argentine filmmaker Lucrecia Martel, the director of landmark films like La Cienaga and The Headless Woman, during the making of her fourth feature, Zama

In the spirit of his previous nonfiction features (Soldier and Solar), the cinematographer-turned-director demonstrates his clever ability to convey the playful, mysterious, frustrated, and delirious stages of filmmaking alongside his complex artistic collaboration with his subject. 

Far more than a behind-the-scenes film, Light Years is as much an intimate portrait of an artist at work as it is an attempt to evoke the oblique, transcendental tendencies that pervade Martel’s films.
